While a lot of having a great beard is genetic, there are more than a few ways to help your beard grow into the full, thick beard you have always wanted.

And today, we’ll  provide you with five essential tips for doing so.

Prep Yourself

Taking care of yourself and your body is an excellent way to kick start the process of beard growth.  Eating a protein-rich diet and eliminating stress, are key factors that aid in hair growth.  These factors work together to ensure the appropriate nutrients make it to your beard. Drinking at least eight glasses of water daily will help your hair and the rest of your body in the process. Taking care of yourself is unquestionably the single most important step in the process, and the key to a healthy lifestyle overall.

Do Not Give Up!

You have to stay with it, and you also have to realize that it does not grow overnight. This is all about time and effort, and sticking with it through the itching and uneven growth.  After a few days, you will finally see some growth which offers motivation for the future. Just know that the itching will ease after about a week. It is at this point that you need to start thinking about your grooming routine and your beard shape as well.  But, whatever you do, do not give up!



Keep It Clean!

A clean beard is a brilliant beard! The Scotch Porter Beard Collection is a perfect way to achieve exactly that.  Keeping your beard clean, as well as the skin underneath will help with growth and moisturizing.  However, don’t let excess soap build up in your beard and carefully pat your beard dry; instead of rubbing your beard dry.  Keeping a clean beard is the key to the growth you want.

Grooming & Care!

While washing and keeping your facial hair clean is necessary, keeping it suitably groomed is also a major factor in growth. Keeping your beard moisturized with beard oils, balms and more will help with growth, as well as the scent.  Trimming your beard will also help, and allow you to change your beard shape and length. A well-groomed beard is more than just a great looking beard; it also provides stimulation for growth and thickness.

Get Some Rest!

While this may seem a bit odd, it is certainly true. Your hair grows best while you are resting. Your body can use the nutrients from your diet and promote cell division at the root of each hair strand.  This means more hair, thicker hair, and healthier hair. Resting well also helps to reduce stress, and as you probably know, stress is a major contributor to hair loss. Keep calm, get plenty of rest, and grow out your impressive beard to its limits.
